Recipes: Assorted Sauces for Pulled Pork

It was a picnic lunch kind of day in my office today. See, I'm kind of the self-appointed cruise director around here. I made myself in charge of feeding everyone when I feel like it and nobody really seems to complain. Just the opposite... I can always count of the...

Recipe: Beer Cheese Soup

I feel the need to make a confession. I am an ingredient snob. And, so, I feel a little guilty about this soup. Velveeta. Cream of soups. Eek. BUT... this is quick and OH so good. It really hit the spot today as we're bunkering down in the face of an impending ice...

Recipe: Swedish Kringle

Kringle, a Swedish almond pastry, is something that has been a holiday tradition for our family for a few generations. I remember making this as a child with my grandmother and mother. What confuses me mightily is my grandmother apparently also bestowed a Kringle...

Recipe: Duckfart Pie

I like to refer to this particular recipe as one of the most evilest desserts in my repertoire. Indeed, it made of 100% creamy, alcoholic goodness. Heavy cream. Sweetened condensed milk. Bailey's Irish Cream. Kahlua. Whisky. Cookies. The resulting pie is rich and...

Will We Ever Kill The Bug? (Part 3)

A quick update... the "Will We Ever Kill The Bug?" quilt top is done! It did take a little longer than I had anticipated, as I goofed up the Beetle by accidentally applying Heat 'n Seal to the wrong side of the fabric. (Derp!) I had to have it reprinted. But now? It...

Recipe: Another Crock Pot French Onion Soup

My usual Go To onion soup recipe basically consists of throwing a lot of sliced onions in a crock pot, adding a bay leaf, filling it up with broth and then letting it cook on low for 24 hours. It produces a surprisingly flavorful soup. This soup is different. It, too,...

Recipe: Pumpkin Bread with Ginger Bits

This is my (and by 'my', I really mean Smitten Kitchen's) ode to Pumpkin Spice season. I was cruising around on Facebook and minding my own business, more or less, when SK's Pumpkin Bread recipe came coasting by. I realized I had all the ingredients and a free...

Recipe: Thai Peanut Sauce

A few weeks ago, I happened to have dinner at an Asian restaurant and ordered their Peanut Butter Chicken. The chicken was sautéed and tossed in a tasty sauce.  Indulgent, a bit spicy, lots of umami. I enjoyed it quite a bit and it reminded me--not without good...
